Small pour from an 1.18 L bottle, huge thanks to Franky Boy! Malt Liquor tick... finally. Clear golden with a small quickly disappearing white head, some lacing. Aroma of herbal/grass, alcohol, corn and slight caramel. Taste is herbal and of alcohol, corn, adjuncts (not that bad). Thin mouthfeel. Not as horrible as I thought it would be.

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color beer with a pure white foamy head with limited retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of sweet adjunct notes with quite a bit of residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by adjunct notes with light sweet finish. Body is light with medium carbonation. Not as bad as I had expected but again not something I would seek again.

Achetée en spécial à cause d’un budget bien serré. Assez médiocre merci. La Bleue, je peux tolérer, mais la DRY, boueurk. J’ai comme un goût de légumes bouillis en bouche. Goûte un peu la bière de taverne, celle qui ressemble au vomi du lendemain.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - SEP 28, 2012
BLACKIPA!!!! Gold pour, small white head. Caramel, dough, alcohol, grapes, pear, and a bit of herbal hops. Very clean finish, lightly sweet, great carbonation. A true masterpiece.

Metalchopz (2197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2012
Originally rated October 2005. Bought this one in a single can at a convenient store in Montreal. Comes in a very nice simple designed 355mL can, which is all silver with blue writting and huge barcodes. Pours a golden honey colour with a big white foamy head, composed of tiny bubbles. The lacing left is very good, all over. Retention is pretty damn good too. Lively carbonation is medium in bubble size. The scent is malty with touches of herbs. After breathing, alcohol and corn comes out. Lightly-bodied mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a mix of honey and malt to then finish smoothly with some light hop and corn. Kind of dry finish with alcohol very well hidden. Gets the job done though.

So Labatt, and Molson’s too, why have five different versions of this gasoline you call beer floating around? As if the discerning homeless drunk isn’t trying to get wasted too fast, and thusly chooses the more attractive seven-point-one version? Out of curiousity I bought one.... and if I spend more time on this continent I might end up trying them all, just out of a sheer morbid fascination. Comes in a 1.18L bottle, enough beer to kill your dog if you’re not careful. Pours with a little head and a boring bright gold body. Aroma of cardboard and grass. Flavour is vague paperish notes, followed by a watery finish. Extra points because it’s drinkable despite the alcohol, and you won’t notice it as it goes down - and that’s about all you can say that’s positive about this one.

[2691-20100113] 950mL can. Dry wood shavings aroma. Clear, yellow body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Straw-like dry wood flavour. Light-medium body. Not offensive yet, certainly not great.
Overheard: "Ooooh, Good Lord that’s ugly." -- smelling his glass

blankboy (5945) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2010
Massive can [950ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, jerc, mabel & GregClow -- c/o j&m. Pours a clear pale gold with a small somewhat-lasting white head. Aroma of alcohol, vegetables, garbage, fusel and grain -- soooo bad. Watery flavour is sugary sweet, vegetal, corny and boozy. Light bodied. Awful, another garbage beer tonight.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
2009-01-13. Yellow body, modes white head and lace. Odd aroma, very brief pleasant sweetness quickly gives way to rough industrial alcohol character. Flavour is surprisingly mild, rough alcohol comes in waves, extremely mild pale malts and what tastes like adjuncts but surprisingly errs on the side of bland and boring rather than offensive, aside from the boozy character. Average palate borders on thin. My 1500th Canadian rating! (Perhaps a sad commentary on my dedication to try as many Canadian ratings as possible??? heh.) Bottle from random Petro-Canada service station in Quebec.

garthicus (2651) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 13, 2010
Thanks to Jerc & Mabel. GIANT can, 950ml. Appearance: Light orange with a tiny white head, no visible carbonation. Aroma: Corn, plastic, damp, mildew, sweat. Flavour: Corn, lots of corn, cheap corn, like the stuff the battery hens won’t eat, sharp salty flavour with an alcoholic undertone.
